    DescriptionThe Burren and the Aran Islands are renowned worldwide for their beautiful wild flowers and plants. Charles Nelson has selected 136 of the most widely occurring plus a number of special plants. Each plant is illustrated by a colour photograph showing it in the wild. To make this a more personal guide, space is provided on each page to record the place and date of discovery. Thus, the guide becomes a souvenir of rambles in search of wild flowers. Introduced by short chapters on the region plus user instructions, the photographs are grouped according to flower colour and pages are colour coded so one can flick to the appropriate section. Intended for the casual tourist/nature lover, plants are described using the common English name, followed by Irish and Latin (botanical) names. Flowering periods and each plant's distribution are given.
